Fantastic "New" Drink Mix

Ok, so I wanted tea - but I wanted decaffeinated and I was out.  Plus I wanted flavor... and not the berry tea bags that I had laying around.  So I invented a new tea... without tea leaves. :-)

Brew in hot water:
2 or more sticks of cinnamon
2-3 cardamom pods
2 bay leaves (yes they're an odd addition but taste lovely)
and a couple strips (2-3") of candied ginger cut in pieces

Put in pot and let steep in hot water for a half hour to over night (or longer).  Strain, heat up in the microwave for a hot drink, or poor over ice for a fantastic refreshing drink!

Ok, back to sipping...
